Bauxite Residue Valorization

Bauxite residues are the solid by-product of the alumina production process. To this day, finding ways to utilize bauxite residues is one of the biggest challenges for the alumina industries, which for the most part remain untapped.

MYTILINEOS, among the world leaders, for more than a decade, invests in research aimed at utilizing bauxite residues as a source of recovery of basic metals, including iron and aluminum, but also rare earths, such as scandium. At the same time, it strengthens the efforts for the use of bauxite residues as an additive in other industrial applications, such as in the production of cement and construction materials, for example as an additive in ceramics and in the production of lightweight materials.
